[laughter] >> well, true confessions, lee, the guilty love is mine. and although it is unfashionable to confess love for the oil industry, i must say that in the process of researching and writing this book and living this book i have become captivated by the extraordinary ambition of a wager that the oil industry makes every day which is the incredible bet against nature that consists of walking up to what to all appearances looks like an empty, barren piece of real estate and figuring out that anywhere between a thousand and 5,000 feet down there is rock. by the way, i don't know if you've ever actually seen the rocks that oil comes from. it's amazing. you would, you would walk by on the street and never look twice. it's gray rock. it's very dense. it look
